Funky reception dancing, a speech with props, and a Ron Swanson painting guest book

Crystal and Richie sneak a smooch behind a great Neil Gaiman book. It also looks like Crystal is sporting some literary nails too. I know some bookish brides will love this! We've also got some funky reception dancing, a speech with props, and a Ron Swanson guest book painting. It's a wacky week in reader submissions and I wouldn't have it any other way. Check out what the Offbeat Bride Flickr Pool, the Offbeat Bride Tribe, and Pinterest had in store for us.

Gah! I love this mis-matched, but totally matching look. Even the bride's shoes coordinate! Photo by Evoke Photography

A Ron Swanson painting as the guest book? These people are heroes.
